I have a confession… I love Kevin Bishop. I have since seeing him in Muppet Treasure Island donkeys years ago. So basically I knew I was going to love this new version of Porridge. Plus I loved the original and Ronnie Barker.
I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED!!!
The original character dynamics were all there and there were many references to the classic series (pineapple chunks!). The updated version certainly worked, was definitely funny and I am begging the BBC to commission a full series!
